About Us

Ogontz Event & Retreat Center is located by the White Mountains of New Hampshire on the shores of their own lake Ogontz. Surrounded by lush mountains, a peaceful lake, babbling streams with waterfalls and small pools to swim in, and beauty that can only be found when you shed the hustle and city lights for a night full of stars and the sounds of nature. Whatever you can dream for your weddings, at Ogontz we can make those dreams come true!

Ogontz has several spaces to hold rehearsal dinners, ceremonies, receptions and other wedding events. We have accomadations for up to 200 guests, multiple ceremony and reception sites, and a host of amenities. The Bridal & Honeymoon Suite sits atop our boathouse with a large deck overlooking the lake filled with natural light with your own stream flowing right past your cabin and into the lake. This room is included with both our packages. Our accomadations range from screened in Adirondack style cabins for a glamping feel with shared bathrooms and shower faciltiies, to cabins with mutliple rooms and in-suite bathrooms, and full houses for rent with all the amenities of home.

Once you step foot on our property, the beauty of our surrounds coupled with the rich history of the grounds is hard to escape. We have a swimming dock and floating jump pad by our lakeside beach, kayaks, paddleboards, and other water toys to check out and enjoy, miles of trails around the lake and from the property, volleyball sand courts, tennis courts, open fields for lawn games, a streamside wood fired hot tub, bonfires, and so much more.

Ogontz is more than a wedding venue, it is an experience.

History

Ogontz White Mountain Camp started back in 1850 when Chestnut Street Female Seminary opened their doors in Philadelphia. Enrollment boomed and the school needed a new home with more space. Jay Cooke of Elkins Park, Pennsylvania rented his land to the school and renamed his mansion after a dear friend, Chief Ogontz, a Sandusky Indian. Chestnut Street Female Seminary became known as Ogontz School for Girls. In 1912, principal Abby Sutherland opened a summer camp in northern New Hampshire as a summer extension of the program in Pennsylvania. The two projects eventually separated and Ogontz Camp began to function as an independant camp in 1923. Today most of the existing cabins and structures are still in use blending the rich history of Ogontz with some modern amenities creating an unforgettable experience.

However, our planning calls with Sarah and Michelle helped us put those fears to rest, as they cover every single detail not just of the wedding day but of the entire weekend. During the actual weekend, Ogontz staff anticipated our every need and was always three steps ahead of us. The camp is an extremely well-oi... Read more
